Cosmos bipinnatus 'Daydream' Seeds


Daydream is tall growing to 90cm/3 feet so it’s brilliant for adding height to your borders or cut flower patch. Daydream has the usual Cosmos feathery apple green foliage and large daisy like flowers with a yellow centre. Daydream petals are palest pink with a darker pink centre.

Cosmos are native to Mexico and South America where they grow all year round in the sunshine . Here in the UK Cosmos Daydream is a half hardy annual. Cosmos has become a classic English cottage garden plant because it will flower all summer and go on flowering right up until the first frosts.

All Cosmos flowers are brilliant for cutting and they will last well over a week in fresh water.
The more flowers you cut the more the plants produce... you will have buckets of flowers every summer from your Cosmos plants. They are amazingly productive and what's more our bees and butterflies love Cosmos too!

Genus Cosmos bipinnatus
Variety Daydream
Plant Type Half Hardy Annual. Cut Flowers and Containers
Height & Spread
90cm/36 inches tall x 45cm/18 inches
Sow Seeds Sow under cover in spring. Lightly cover with a fine layer of compost or vermiculite... Cosmos need light to germinate. Grow seedlings on then plant out your young plants after the last frosts. Direct sow seed in flowering positions from May onwards.
Thin/Plant Out Cosmos need plenty of space to develop and grow. Allow about 45cm/18 inches between plants. Seedlings transplant well so you could do what I do and grow a few in large pots to fill any gaps in your planting schemes.
Conditions Required Grow in full sun in moist but well drained soil. Provide support such as pea and bean netting stretched horizontally. When the young plants reach 20cm/8 inches tall pinch out the tips to encourage side shoots to develop.
Flower Production Cosmos takes around 14 weeks to flower from a spring sowing. Flowers are produced from June until the first frosts in October. Keep cutting and deadheading to produce more flowers.
Picking Cut Cosmos flowers when it’s cool… early in the morning or in the evening and pop them straight into a tall bucket of fresh water. Cosmos blooms will last 7 – 10 days in a vase.
Planting Combinations Cosmos is such a brilliant flower to grow because it combines beautifully with other tall plants such as Ammi, Larkspur, Nicotiana and Cornflowers.
